The August Break: Twenty-Five

Wondering what the August Break is? Check out this post.

25. Green

As a little girl, lying down in the middle of a big expansive empty green field to look up at the sky made me feel safe and free of all of the noise and sensitivities and ideas and words and experiences that weighed me down.

In my safe green field, I could breathe, and I could be.

Jeremy wrote a nice little song about it for me the first summer we were dating. Now that was a good sign that he would be able to care deeply and tangibly for me as the years unfolded.

“You see a safe green field, Let me go with you there…”

Rumi Field

Nature restores, green restores. Thank God.
